Re: Need a bit of help deciding on upgrade or new

And a Side by side of my Best adjustment since layer shifting began Black is 3D Printer with layer shifting Blue is its Twin Printer without layer shifting. Right Lead-Screw comparison.jpg You can see the layer shifting on the Black model though it is very minimal. Will try Marlin 2.0.x Junction Dev...

Re: Need a bit of help deciding on upgrade or new

I know what you are going through. I am having layer shifting because I believe I bent one of the rods or maybe both. My 3D Printer came with the really cheap bed carriage made out of thin sheet metal and bent at 90 degree angles for strength. Any pressure on the carriage causes it to deform making ...

Re: I wrote a bloat-free STL viewer

Meet Vulkan

OpenGL, despite its cross-platform abilities, has been battling against DirectX for years now, and that's undoubtedly going to continue with Vulkan.
There's good news for Linux gamers "Porting between Vulkan and DirectX 12 won't be too hard," says Khronos Group president Neil Trevett.

Re: PLA thickness for air pressure usage

Hi I used to work for a company making pressure vessels. We always tested the vessels with water, the reason, it there was a problem the water would leak and the pressure would go down quickly and safely. If you use air to test and the is a problem, BOOM. :-o Test with water first. Lez Thanks Lez0

Checked all the voltages which were X 0.88 - Y 0.88 - E0 0.86 - E1 0.89 I have set the voltages to what they were meant to be and set the Z to 1.07 as the video said 1 - 1.1 I also re-tensioned the Y - Axis belt just to be double sure that it was tight enough and checked all the drive cogs were def...

Re: Need a bit of help deciding on upgrade or new

On the Hictop the Z-Axis Couplers. If you wrap a single layer of Electricians Tape around the bottom Lead-Screw before inserting it into the Coupler it will not make Z waves. You can test this by moving the Z-Axis up and down 100mm at a time it the Coupler wobbles then you will have Z-Waves. Believe...

Re: Marlin 2.0.x on My Hictop 3DP11

Looking through the Code in Marlin 2.0.x under " src\config\examples "
Is an example of the Configuration.h and configuration_adv.h of 80 + 3D Printers.
This should make it much easier for those who want to upgrade, or for the rest of us to help anyone who wants to upgrade to Marlin 2.0.x

Re: How's everyone doing...2019 version!

Don't you just Hate it when that happens! Have not been here much lots of snow, an still playing with Marlin 2.0.x new features to determine which will work best with my 3D Printer. Yesterday the Layer Shift got extremely bad. This happened with a combination of Marlin 2.x, Cura 4 and low V-Ref. Lay...

Re: Part cooling fan tied to Y?

To keep your 3D Printer printing it is somewhat faster to replace the fan wire everything. Then trouble shoot while the fan is off the 3D Printer and easily accessible. This is why some of us have at least one spare of all consumable parts. Fans, Thermisters, Bearings, Couplers, Hotend Heaters, nozz...

Re: Marlin 2.0.x on My Hictop 3DP11

Today I am testing junction deviation using .06 I have read several articles Stating that .02 is ~ a jerk setting of 5 Starting at 0.05 is a typical value for a 3D printer. If your printer is very sturdy, you could use 0.1. Decided on .06 as my starting point #define JUNCTION_DEVIATION #if ENABLED(J...
